A SLEAFORD School is offering School Direct training opportunities and is inviting applications from the most able graduates in the region.

Kesteven and Sleaford High School Selective Academy (KSHSSA) is offering this new path into teaching as a way to gain the qualifications and practical skills you need to become a teacher.

It enables those who have just finished a degree, or have been working in a career for many years to combine teacher training with actually doing and learning on the job.

Josephine Smith, Deputy Headteacher said: "We have six places at our school, or our associate schools across the county, for trainees taking the non salaried Schools Direct route and one salaried post for a graduate looking to retrain to become a maths teacher.

"These opportunities are often hotly competed for and we welcome applications from trainees wishing to start training in September 2013 to become maths, English, modern language, history, geography or physics teachers.

"We are delighted to be part of the School Direct programme and look forward to receiving applications from those interested in a career in the classroom - it's a great way to learn and qualify to become a teacher, offering candidates support from their future colleagues, who have a wealth of experience."

Candidates can now apply for the academic year 2013/2014. Further information is available at: www.education.gov.uk/schooldirect
